Jeff Jarrett is one of many veterans in the AEW locker room and has decades of experience to lend to younger talent.
Jarrett is a well-traveled legend in wrestling having competed for WWE, WCW, TNA/IMPACT, AEW, and various territories. On AEW, Jarrett is paired with fellow veterans Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt, and newcomer Satnam Singh.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Jarrett was asked about giving advice to the younger talent in AEW.
"What I've found out through my journey is that guys that want to learn will come up and ask. Guys that don't want to learn, don't. The minute I go up and try to give unsolicited advice, for whatever reason, it never goes the right way. I have found, and there have been a few, that ability to convey emotion...here's the world we live in, I think it goes way outside of wrestling. Kids being coachable or wanting to be produced are so few and far between. Nobody can produce themselves. It doesn't work. Everyone has a certain level of charisma, it's the ones who know how to get the charisma out. You have different guys to have breakout years and moments. I'm not going to sit here and say I define the next level, because the next level goes with ratings, merchandise, YouTube views, selling more tickets, it's all of the above. The guy who is truly the breakout, it's going to be by his mouth. You're not going to see a new move that gets somebody over. It's somebody who breaks through the crowd, but it's going to be by their verbal skills. That's what I wish guys would hone in on and take a step back and say, 'I have to be a better talker. If I can be a better talker, that's going to keep me at the top of the card.' Who is that going to be? That's a great question," said Jarrett.
Jarrett is set to team with Jay Lethal at AEW Revolution. The duo will challenge the Gunns (Austin & Colten Gunn) for the AEW Tag Team Titles in a four-way bout that also includes The Acclaimed (Max Caster & Anthony Bowens) and Orange Cassidy & Danhausen.
